CADDO PARISH PARKS AND RECREATION RECEIVES $50,000 FROM NO KID HUNGRY
Caddo Parish, LA – Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation Department has received $50,000.00 in grant funding to feed summer youth program participants healthy snacks and lunch during the summer months of June – August.
With many families having lost jobs or wages in recent months due to the pandemic, more kids than ever will rely on the meals they receive outside of their respective homes.
“We are elated to receive this critical funding from No Kid Hungry. This grant award will help ensure that our department staff can continue to provide our summer program youth participants with the nutrition they need to reach their full potential during the summer season,” said Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation director Patrick Wesley.
